It's been a month or so since I've participated in the League of Extraordinary Bloggers, but this is one assignment I just couldn't miss. Our marching orders this week are to post photos of a shelf of items that displays our love of pop culture. As a toy collector, I have a bunch of shelves that would have worked well for this assignment, but I opted to showcase my "catch-all" shelf in the Dork Vault (also known as the toy storage closet). Let's take a look!
Left: Starbase Station
On the far left of the shelf, we have the Starcom Starmax Bomber docked at the Starbase Station for refueling and maintenance. In front, Officer Big Mac keeps watch with his wide unblinking eyes, along with Chuck E. Cheese and a Mordel from Rocks & Bugs & Things. Army Ant commandos guard the station.
Middle: Skull Island
In the middle, Mezco and McFarlane King Kongs roar in unison. Directly in front of them, we see Huppahickasillia, Grumpyrubleosus, and Yoggayoggyitus from the GERMS line, along with SOTA's Dhalsim and the impossible-to-photograph Ambush Predator by Kenner. A vinyl Gizmo and Tenderheart Bear sneak in on the right. And in the front, we see my budding Marx Dinosaur collection.
And on the far right we see the Staypuft Marshmallow Man along with the Amok Time Tarman. But the star of the shelf is an awesome Tarman bust sculpted by my friend Jason that seems to lunge for my brains anytime I walk into the Vault. Three Madballs "round out" the display (har har): Fist Face, Splitting Headache, and Skull Face.
Other Leaguers feel the need for Shelf Expression, too:
- Goodwill Hunting 4 Geeks has a cool miscellaneous shelf with lots of California Raisins.
- Officer Big Mac sneaks into another shelf over at The Lair of the Dork Horde.
- Jason Vorhees shows off part of his TMNT collection.
- Cool and Collected decided to add some cool to a piano with some vintage figures.
